BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has imposed full control over the northern Homs and southeastern Hama after years of war with the Islamist rebels.

According to a military report from this front, the Syrian government evacuated the last group of militants and their family members from northern Homs, Wednesday, marking the end of their presence in this area.

All-in-all, the Syrian Army has retaken over 65 towns within a 1,200 square kilometer area between northern Homs and southeastern Hama.

The last rebel forces were transported from this once large pocket in central Syria to the northern province of Idlib.

Perhaps the most important thing to come from this is the Syrian Arab Army’s full control over the Damascus-Homs Highway for the first time in years.

I’m afraid Daeshbag’s friends from USA and their Kurdish puppets will not allow any soon this war to end. So far so good. However, there is a lot more to be done before this artificially created war finally ends…
